We're having an outdoor wedding at a campsite, and during the reception we'll have a campfire and s'mores bar. Instead of getting those bulk wooden skewers that mean you have to get pretty close to the fire (definitely too close for comfort for kids!), we're buying telescoping s'more sticks, like the picture. We figure we'd need at least 10 so people aren't fighting over sticks, but with about 50 guests, we can just get one for everyone.
So we decided we'd make them multi-purpose and have them double/triple as escort cards and favors. We're deciding between 2 ways of doing this:
1. Use a paint marker to write the person's name on the handle, then stick a marshmallow on the prongs with the table number written in edible ink.
2. Write names and table numbers on tags and tie them to the stick.
Clearly #1 is more unique, and the marshmallow on the pointy tip adds a (likely temporary) safety buffer around kids. But in the unlikely event those same kids (or squirrels, or whatever) are unsupervised and eat the marshmallows before people get their sticks, table numbers would disappear.
#2 is just as much work and expense, doesn't seem as fun/interesting, but is the option less likely to be messed up by possibly unpredictable edible ink and/or woodland creatures
Any thoughts on which would be better?
